Multiplying clusters of disciples
one heart at a time
A long line of prayer intercessors over the city
Wisdom of Old "Soles"
Walking God’s path together with the next generations
Walking God’s Path Together (John 3:17)
Wisdom of Old “Soles” is a ministry that uses the same technology to bring people to Jesus that Satan uses to pull them away from Him. The purpose is to mentor, develop, and provide GenZ Christ-followers (1995-2012) tools to become disciple-makers so they will create disciple-making communities of believers.
Sometimes wisdom comes from unexpected places. Those of you who know me also know that I tend to be awake in the middle of the night or early hours of the morning. Years ago, I would spend that time DXing across the shortwave bands listening to Radio Moscow and trying to figure out what would be in the news before the New York Times or Washington Post hit the streets. That radio world changed with the internet.
Now I listen to podcasts and YouTube educational instruction videos ranging from NancyPi’s tutorials on solving calculus differential equation problems to the Crazy Russian Hacker’s mind-numbing life-hacks. What can I say? I don’t always sleep through the night.
I usually find myself having to explain why we spell our name “soles”—the bottom of our shoes—instead of “souls.” For the record, it is a play on words to highlight both the fact that I am forever dressed in my Converse Chucks and the fact that our ministry tagline is “walking God’s path together.” If you still don’t get it, just think about it.
This time in the title I enclosed “Wisdom” not “Soles” in quotation marks, not as an intentional misspelling, but to highlight the fact that as we are walking God’s path together, we are not meandering aimlessly. We are hacking through jungles and picking through brambles while trying to avoid life’s many potholes and pitfalls, wisely charting our way. Being a Christian is not a proverbial stroll through the park but a spiritual warfare survival course where the enemy uses live ammunition. That life course takes wisdom and a lot of it.
In the early 2000s, the prayer mothers and fathers of Charlotte birthed “Charlotte Awake.” They did so because of a keenly felt need for revival in the church and spiritual awakening in the community and culture.
No one knew the details beyond that, but by faith, “Charlotte Awake” became an umbrella for believers with the same vision and calling for God’s church. This open group has always been diverse, brought together by the Holy Spirit, trusting God for His kingdom and His will as we near Jesus’ return.
Charlotte Awake remains a movement where people feel called to pray. Originally stewarded by Bob and Mary Lance Sisk, Dr. Bob Lowman, Bishop Larry Jackson, and others, in 2014, Dr. David Ingrassia became the movement’s current steward—one always headed by the Lord Jesus.
We are followers of Jesus, anointed and called. Since 2014, a Board of Elders oversees Charlotte Awake’s staff and ministry operations. The prayer movement remains as it was, an open and diverse calling of all who are anointed by God’s Spirit to pray for church awakening in Charlotte and beyond.
